Greenway News
April 2021

Happy Earth Day! A great way to celebrate this special day is to enjoy and explore all the many great recreational opportunities in and around the Brandywine Creek Greenway. Need some ideas? Download our free Brandywine Creek Greenway app, which uses your smartphone's GPS technology to find the closest parks and preserves to your current location. The Greenway app contains more than 200 publicly accessible parks and preserves up and down the Brandywine from Honey Brook to the City of Wilmington.

From biking to birding to trail hiking, plus fishing, boating, and more, you can filter the app by activity type to discover endless options for recreational fun. Each location includes a brief description, a scrollable photo gallery, GPS-enabled directions, tips, and more.

To learn more and download the app visit

The app is available for free download for both Apple and Android operating systems.
